A blog report from Nintendo World on September 14th reveals that the Nintendo Wii is sensitive to natural sunlight.
Hope they get a fix for it.
Ok people, try not using your wii on the backyard. Keep it indoor.
Now I can't play my Wii at the beach!
yeah but someone who has alot of windows in their living room with alot of natural light might be hosed. not that i am getting a wii because i am older than 12 but if i could only play it at night because my 2 story windows in my living room let in too much light for it, i would be pissed.
my game room has a few windows, but they have thick curtains that I close for TV viewing and playing my 360.
Hey man...I'm 16 years old and i am definetely getting the Nintendo Wii. I even know someone in my family who is 25 years old and they are getting the system too! I'll be waiting in line!! :D:D
i guess it would suck. fortuantely for me, my only interest in the Wii is for a few N64 and Gamecube games, and a bunch of NES and SNES games...not for the Wiimote.
Same here. This does not affect me.
want the wii for super mario galaxy, zelda and super smash bros.
i might get it aswell for excite truck...anyway i dont think this is true, because then ps3 and 360, the sunlight should effect them aswell.
Its a gimmick and i've said this many many times. Its a nice "NEW" gimmick but still its a gimmick, open your eyes people. a 250$ gimmick your better off staying with a ps2
when all the dust has settled, the market share will look something like this:
i see the Wii selling huge at first, but like most gimicks (and lets be honest, no matter how much Nintendo has charmed us all, the Wiimote is a gimick...sure, i'd like to buy one, but it is what it is) it will probably start to fizzle a year or two into its life cycle. PS3 will sell at the most static-like pace, with occasional boosts as its price is lowered. it will retain fewer exclusives than its predecessor, but will still retain more exclusives than its immediate competitor, the 360. the graphical difference between the two will start to show, with something akin to the difference between PS2 and Gamecube's graphics. the 360 will have moderate success in both the US and PAL territories, due in large part to Live and what exclusives it managed to snag from Sony; but this success will be offset by Japan, where which it will probably managed maybe (MAYBE) 5-10% market share. keep in mind this is just my constructive OPINION. opinions don't need to be flamed, because they are neither correct or incorrect.
So the PS3 motion sensor controller is no gimmick, but the Wii is?
Strange. It's the best motion sensor up to date in concept and the PS3 controller is just a cheap ripp off of the Sidewinder motion controller MS made years ago
Dam! this guy always posts bad news about every console except the PS3. Wii will fail, the sun light problem is a big one. hehe I agree with the Hardcore Sony fanboy with the yellow beaver rat thing as an avatar.
Yellow Beaver FTW !@#!@#
I wish Nintendo would just DIE already, and make games for the Playstation platform, similarly to SEGA. I'd play a zelda for PS3, but i wont dump 250$ on a "Wii" <-- that is enuff to make me not want it. PS3 is more then enough console for myself,that + my PC and i got the best of both worlds.
You don't get the best out of two worlds. You miss some great ones.
For example the biggest game of the coming time Gears of War. Not to mention the shortcomings on for example COD3 and Ubisoft games Rainbox Six etc. on PS3 with low framerate, no 4 x AA and HDR at the same time and more
